Default Las Vegas at Night

Wife and I went to Vegas for Valentine's Day and a Rod Stewart concert at Caesar's Palace. Place was crazy busy-temps around 80+ throw in President's Day weekend.
All shot with K5-iis using DA Ltd 21 3.2 ISO 1600 1/125
When I tried using any of the auto exposures the camera tried to create daylight shots-not what I wanted-so switched to manual exposure and did trial and error-all hand held. Fountains @ the Bellagio

Been there done that, and it was a good time, great on a warm evening. You did a great job capturing the feeling, I can just hear the fountain music. I have to assume Rod Stewart was great, we have seen him in concert.

Wish I had known you were going to be there, I was there too. I didn't venture down to the strip, instead I was listening to a barbershop quartet sing to my 96 year old mother in Summerlin, but I could have. Oh well, another time...

Nicely done, the exposures capture the mood.
